Most people believe that the process of chewing gum can be distracting not only to the chewer, but to the surrounding persons.
My first reason as to why we should be allowed to chew gum is because it can help certain people focus better. The more focused you are the more accurate and aware you are. Chewing gum also makes you answer questions far more quickly correctly. Finally, if you chew gum than you can focus longer meaning that you could take in more information. I usually have a hard time focusing so even if these

The majority of people throw their cigarette buds onto the ground after smoking, this can cause countless problems to many different living things. For example, wild animals could think the cigarette butt is food and eat it. The animal cannot digest the buds which can make the animal sick and it could lead to fatal circumstances. Cigarette butts do not decompose which can lead the buds getting carried into our water systems and it can contaminate our water. In 2005 alone 135 million pounds of cigarette butts were dumped in the U.S. (Cigarette Butts Are Toxic Waste1. (n.d.). Retrieved September 12, 2015, from http://www.tobaccofreeca.com/smoking-problem/impact/environment/). This amount of trash on a college campus would give the campus an unappealing appearance. Air pollution from cigarettes is greater than a diesel car exhaust. Smoking is the silent killer of our
A teacher once told me, “One mans trash is another mans treasure, what he doesn’t appreciate the next man will.” Until recently analyzing this statement I always pondered about it as a metaphor using the thoughts, and ideas of people, but after reading Garbology I have come up with a literal process of reusing trash. On average Americans wastes 220 million tons of waste generated each year in the United States which ends up in one of the over 3,500 landfills. According to Edward Humes, the author of Garbology, “Garbage has become one the most accurate measures of prosperity in the twenty-first-century America and the world,” which proves that trash is a means to improving the success rate of Americans. This reminds me of the words of Confucius who stated, “When a goal cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goal, adjust the action step” because with the knowledge from garbology we can
Every time my family and I go grocery shopping we end up having numerous plastic bags after unloading the food. For the most part we save these bags, keeping them underneath the sink in case we need to use them for something else later on. However, we have done such a great job at saving these bags that they have begun to take up space. As such we have recently started throwing most of them in the garbage. After watching the Bag It documentary in my English class I begin to realize how much plastic we actually end up throwing away just in these plastic bags, and how wasteful it is.
When the gum hit the stores last year I was thrilled to try and get some, however I was only able to about a month later. One of my biggest track and field idles uses the gum and that’s not surprising since he made it. It makes since to have the gum, but keeping the boxes makes me a hoarder. I do use the boxes when I need to store stuff but looks really weird to have to go to a box of gum to get a paper clip or a pencil. I really don’t have any reason to keep boxes but for some reason instead of getting rid of them it looks like I collect them and really don’t want to make it look like that, but until I do toss them I will continue to use them for paper clip
Many individuals are accustomed to waste at least a portion of what they buy, whether it is food, clothes, furniture, supplies, or materials worldwide. According to the article: “On Dumpster Diving” many valuable items were found by the homeless who searched the dumpster for food. Surprisingly, they found useful items that helped them survive throughout each day. In fact, the products were worth for the exchange of money. At certain times, I myself may be considered to be a wasteful person during certain times such as, not finishing my drink and throwing more than half of it away. While rushing at work during break, this is a usual situation for many people Although, it isn't necessarily on purpose it is considered wasteful, valuable and influence advertising.
Gum has been around for hundreds of years, even the Ancient Greeks had a substance similar to gum to chew on. Unlike ancient times, when gum was harvested from a type of plant, in the early 1900’s the synthetic gum we now know exploded into America. Since then gum has grown to become an imbedded part of American culture. You can buy gum practically anywhere that has a local gas station or supermarket. Gum has health benefits like oral hygiene and appetite suppressant, not to mentions countless delicious flavors and competing companies. Two of the largest companies, William Wrigley Company, creator of 5 Gum, and Stride another widely known company, gross hundreds of millions of dollars yearly. With so many options to gum chewers in the nation

Katy meets with Gilbert down at the courthouse and sign documents with him and they hand them in to get stamped with photographers and their parents nearby. Their document is stamped with a void and a different document is put in an envelope and passed to Gilbert. He puts it in his pocket and tries to kiss Katy, but she quickly stepped away from him in fear.
Approximately four hours into their travel, a red firework exploded in the distance and previously concealed bandits emerged from behind boulders, undergrowths and covered pits. They charged with the ferocity of a tidal wave, brandishing weapons and bellowing threats. Aloysius halted his horse, made a signal, and soldiers began to move forward.
Ludwig looked absolutely pissed. That was the first thing Arthur noticed as the blonde stalked down the halls, hair down for once, clothes askew, and such a strong irritation on his face that Arthur couldn’t help but snort to himself. It looked like someone had gotten up on the wrong side of the bed, Ludwig never let his appearance be thrown together like that. The next thing Arthur noticed, however, was a little more interesting. A small statured man with silver hair, whose head only came to Ludwig’s shoulder, was hanging onto the blonde’s arm, a large grin on his lips. Now who the hell was that? It wasn’t like the Brit had seen him around school before, and Ludwig certainly hadn’t mentioned him.
By nightfall they had finished all of the burials. It was depressing to see how many people were dead, even more so knowing that wasn’t the majority of them. Several times throughout the day new carcasses were dumped carelessly on the dwindling pile, just adding another hole to dig.
